Detailed Description

Abstract factory class, archive codec plugins can register concrete subclasses of this.

Remarks
All access to 'archives' (collections of files, compressed or just folders, maybe even remote) is managed via the abstract Archive class. Plugins are expected to provide the implementation for the actual codec itself, but because a subclass of Archive has to be created for every archive, a factory class is required to create the appropriate subclass.
So archive plugins create a subclass of Archive AND a subclass of ArchiveFactory which creates instances of the Archive subclass. See the 'Zip' and 'FileSystem' plugins for examples. Each Archive and ArchiveFactory subclass pair deal with a single archive type (identified by a string).

Member Function Documentation

◆ createInstance() [1/2]

virtual Archive* Ogre::ArchiveFactory::createInstance ( const String name,
bool  readOnly 
)
pure virtual

Creates a new object.

Parameters
nameName of the object to create
readOnlywhether the Archive is read only
Returns
An object created by the factory. The type of the object depends on the factory.

Implemented in Ogre::EmbeddedZipArchiveFactory, Ogre::APKFileSystemArchiveFactory, Ogre::ZipArchiveFactory, and Ogre::FileSystemArchiveFactory.

◆ createInstance() [2/2]

virtual Archive* Ogre::ArchiveFactory::createInstance ( const String name)
inlinevirtual

Creates a new object.

Parameters
nameName of the object to create
Returns
An object created by the factory. The type of the object depends on the factory.

Implements Ogre::FactoryObj< Archive >.
